What anime is this? I like the style, it reminds me of Beck.


the top one is Occult Academy, which is airing right now, while the bottom one I have no clue

That is one of the characters from the Black Rock Shooter OVA.

The trailer looks like Puffy Ami Yumi (crap) throwing up on Invader Zim and Afro Samurai and some other random anime. I'm confused by that trailer. lol. I love the art style and the title(wink). I want to see this so bad. I just hope it isn't like Crappy Ami Yumi beyond the art.

This anime will really need to be animated "on ones" (one drawing per frame, resulting in fast, flowing animation. Most anime are animated "on twos", meaning one drawing per two frames) in order to look great.

Otherwise, it will only look decent with an attempt at a somewhat unique style and nothing more.

lol you're missing the whole point if you think the Gurren team should animate on 1s

the whole point of the styles people like imaishi, yoshinari, sushio etc use is that they use lower framerates that allow the animator to fuck around and make things expressive and unique

The cartoon was terrible, It will be interesting to see if Gainax can make it not suck.

what cartoon

if you mean imaishi's comic then the show will def. be like that too

For sudden, I think this will be more close to something like FLCL or Dead leaves. I mean, it's the team who did Gurren Lagann; "The story of a boy who fights invaded aliens with galaxy sized robot". This one is same, except boy/aliens/robots needs to be changed as girls/ghosts/fanservices.

I don't have much expectation on another GAINAX projects. (source) It doesn't look a single bit interesting. Magical fantasy doesn't suits GAINAX's style much. But let's see how they can pull of that.

So any more news as to whether this is the anime Gainax plan to set in Britain or not?

Okay, a little update. There was a Gainax panel at Fanime 2010 and someone asked about the anime set in England. Hiroyuki Yamaga (Director of Magical Shopping Arcade Abenobashi, Mahoromatic and Wings of Honneamise) said that they were doing Panty and Stocking with Garterbelt first (which the translator called “Panty and Stockings with Garterbelts”), which is “very dirty”, and their subsequent work will be a “more refined” show set in early 20th century England.

It took you guys this long to lose faith in Gainax? I quit once I realized TTGL isn't interesting once you take into account the Parallel Worlds, movies, OVA's, etc.
